If you’re human, then chances are you’ve had to overcome adversity of some sort in your life. Maybe you’ve experienced a situation like a betrayal, divorce, rejection, loss of a job, or so many others.
The problem is that so many people let these experiences control their life. They give in to their emotions and feelings in such situations and let it determine their habits and how they live their life.
We’ve all had bad things happen to us. Sometimes we know why and sometimes we don’t. And sometimes you feel like the whole world has turned its back on you.
If this is happening to you, YOU’RE NOT ALONE.
Most of the time we have big dreams and goals, like wanting to travel and explore the world, get a better job and do what we love. The bigger our dreams are, the more obstacles are in the way.
Here are the 7 things you must take action on to overcome adversity and achieve your deepest desires
1. Create A Positive Mental Attitude
This means to see yourself as a winner despite the uncertainty that lies ahead. Creating the winner’s mindset will often put you in a state of mind to overcome adversity and anything that stands in your way when it comes to achieving your dreams.
Start by picturing yourself where you want to see yourself. Build a mental image of whom you wish to become. This often has to align with your inner dream. Use the power of your imagination to see everything around you the way you want it to be.
Once you do, start taking steps toward achieving this goal. Do this now and see the tremendous experience you’ll get.
2. Read The Stories Of Successful People
If you want to overcome adversity and achieve your inner desires, you must find out how successful people overcame their struggles and reached toward their goal.
When I was starting towards building my blog, I received many rejections and was ignored by a lot of people. This hit me on the inside and I thought maybe building a blog is not for me. Maybe it’s for the big guys who already have experience in doing it.
Then one day, I came across a Jon Morrow story: “How to Quit Your Job, Move to Paradise, and Get Paid to Change the World” After going through everything he said I just couldn’t help but think what if that was me?
Jon is a guy who can’t move anything but his face and yet he went from zero level to someone who built a business that nets millions of dollars. And honestly, that changed my life.
Reading a success story of overachievers like that of Jon will give you the hope and inspiration you need to keep moving through your adversity and soon you will sail to the promised land and achieve your dreams.

3. Trust Yourself
Someone once said: “I can only show you the door; you’re the one that has to walk through.”
Learning to trust may be difficult in the beginning, but you have to trust your inner wisdom and what your heart knows. Without this, it is impossible to remove self–doubt and navigate the energy you need to overcome adversity.
Create a feeling and an emotional, mental image. See yourself accomplishing a certain task that will progress you toward achieving your dreams. Because you see, what you wish to achieve is already a part of you.
Trusting yourself will create the inner capacity to receive whatever you wish to achieve. If you do this, everything you’re missing in your life will come to you and you’ll experience a great manifestation.
4. Practice Focused Breathing
Want to gain mental control over whatever situation is happening to you? Practicing focused breathing is key. This will help the body find clarity, making it become peaceful and still.
5. Practice Relaxation
This will help you clear your mind, with the goal of helping you create a mental movie toward achieving your goals.
To do this, simply lie on your back and focus on the ceiling of your room. Start by taking a long, deep breath and then softly release the breath. Do this three times and gently close your eyes during the third breath.
Now start by projecting your mind, watch yourself in the movie of your mind, focusing on what you want to accomplish. Keep projecting your mind movie deeper and as you do this let your mind sink deep and settle into where it feels the most comfortable.
If negative thoughts come, switch them into a positive one as your mind keeps showing you deep inner wisdom about yourself.
Once you’re done with this, it’s likely you’ll feel like sleeping, if so, allow yourself to have some sleep. If not, follow this awakening process to come back to the present moment.
With your eyes closed, imagine yourself in a deep well with a staircase; imagine yourself, one step at a time, slowly coming up the staircase. Once you get to the surface, gently open your eyes. Notice how peaceful and comfortable you feel. Practice this often to get more efficient results.
6. Quit Negative Self Talk
What you say about yourself will often constrain you and create your outcomes. If you say, “Peace, be still my soul and let nothing trouble you”, peace of mind will find you.
On the other hand, if you say, “I’m lonely or I can’t get myself to make any change or I’m guilty of my action,” you’re likely to keep experiencing a negative mood every day.
The solution to this?
Start practicing positive self–talk. When you feel weak say you’re strong, when you’re sick say you feel fine, and when you’re broke remember that you have all you need.
Do this and you will be creating a better reality for yourself and soon or later you’ll achieve your dreams.
7. Practice Goal Setting
One of the most important reasons why we do what we do is because we want to achieve certain outcomes in a lifetime. Think about it, you’re not just hunched over your desk working day and night because you like it; you are certainly expecting something in return, perhaps you want to achieve a goal.
However, if your goal doesn’t have enough clarity, it might lead to more delays and procrastination. And I believe the road to hell is paved with procrastination.
Take a moment to reflect on your goals. What are they?
Done with that? Now ask yourself the following question.
Is this goal or activity something you’re passionate about, enjoy doing, feel proud about, and would do it, regardless of money, recognition, and power?
Will this goal or activity lead to a useful outcome for you? Is this goal or activity worth losing other things you find important?
Can you do it without costing too much of your time and energy needed elsewhere? Is the goal or activity leading to a result you can enjoy soon?
Do you have all the resources you need to successfully accomplish this goal or activity?
If you don’t answer yes or strongly agree with the questions above, then it’s likely you will not feel committed or excited about the goal you’re about to pursue or are pursuing, which can become an obstacle in your way.
So what if you don’t strongly agree with the questions above? Should you quit and not proceed? No, instead spend some time reflecting on an area where you find weakness and ask yourself, “What can I do to become stronger and gain control in this area?”
Succeeding in life means thinking deeply through every activity before engaging in it. Considering how you can become strong in your area of weakness might just give you the sense of accomplishment you need.
Identifying your goal and taking every action needed will bring you good results even if you’re not talented.
Are you ready to overcome your obstacle and achieve your deepest ambition?
Do you want to be part of the insider’s club who live an amazing life every day? And do you want to grow your self-esteem and self-image quickly? Are you ready to set bigger goals for your life and rapidly achieve them?
You can achieve it all through mastering the things we talked about above.
These are the most effective ways to overcome adversity, create new habits, achieve your potential, and your goals.
So are you ready to take your life to the next level? Start practicing each of these things every day.
You’ll be on your way to your greater ‘Life’ in no time.
